Dance Dance Roverbot! 

Written By: KRA5H 


You will learn how to build a light activated, dancing, programmable robot built completely 
out of Snap Circuits Parts. First, you will learn how to install the PICAXE Programming 
Editor (the PICAXE is the microcontroller, or computer brain for your Dance Dance 
Roverbot). Next, you will learn what a simple PICAXE program looks like and what it does. 
Then you will learn about the various parts and electronic components used to build Dance 
Dance Roverbot. You will then assemble Dance Dance Roverbot. Finally you will learn how 
to program and test Dance Dance Roverbot.

Dance Dance Roverbot! 

Step 1 — Dance Dance Roverbot! 

• Elenco has incorporated the 
PICAXE 08M into their Snap 
Circuits product line called Snap 
Circuits Micro that teaches you 
how program the PICAXE 
microcontroller and how to build 
circuits for the PICAXE. 

• Elenco also has the Snap Circuits 
Rover, a remote controlled robot 
that is built out of Snap Circuits 

• Curiously, it doesn't seem to have 
occurred to Elenco's product 
developers to combine the two toys 
to create a Snap Circuits 
programmable robot. 

• So, I created the following 
instructable to inspire folks from 8 
to 80 to get interested in robotics 
using these easy to use, 
solderless, snap-together toys- 
Dance Dance Roverbot is easy to 
build and easy to program:
